What powers does a Catholic or eastern rite Catholic bishop have that an Orthodox bishop does not?

Does an Orthodox bishop hold the same authority in an eparchy as a RC or EC bishop have in a diosese?

You just opened a can of nastly, ugly, man-eating worms.  :D
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

The bible says, "And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell."

The Roman Catholic Bishop will do it for you while the Orthodox Bishop will cut off his own hand as an example.

Unfortunately, the Orthodox Church has some RC wannabees serving in office at the moment.
